Cornwall Council approve wind turbine development in Davidstowe Woods

The BBC website reports that a Cornish planning application for 20 wind turbines to be built in Davidstowe Woods has been approved.

The turbines, standing 410ft high (over two-and-a-half times the height of Nelson’s Column) will create 7 new jobs. Construction starts next year.

The approval comes amidst local objections from those concerned about damaging the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst the company behind the development said the approval was “fantastic news”.
